Configuration[edit]

Ok, first replace

 type="gtk" 

with

 type="internal" 

in the <gui ... /> tag in Configuationl.

Install librsvg. (or rather librsvg-2-gtk in case of the Ångström development)

(Re)start navit.
You'll see a screen with the map with more room for the map when compared to the gtk view.

If your OS provides you with a keyboard that you prefer to the one navit gives you, you should try setting

 keyboard="false"

inside the <gui .../> tag.

Menu[edit]

Tick on the screen (I use an ipaq), or click on the screen with the mouse and the screen switches to a menu.

On Screen Display[edit]

When you have the internal gui working, a next step could be to look at the On Screen Display, or OSD for short. Using the OSD you can overlay the map with various items for status information and control.
